Are you a talented scientist with an excellent research idea?

You can carry it out in Poland!

The choice of the research field and a host institution in Poland is up to you. You can receive as much as € 100,000 for basic research, a monthly salary of € 4,465 gross and, above all, a chance to develop your research career.

POLONEZ BIS is a fellowship programme for experienced researchers, co-funded by the European Commission and the Polish National Science Centre under the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND grant. In three calls to be announced in 2021 and 2022, the programme will recruit 120 experienced researchers from all over the world. They will move to Poland for 24 months to conduct their basic research in public or private institutions of their choice. The programme guarantees successful Fellows a full time employment and an additional grant for the implementation of their own projects in a research field of their choice. The research component will be complemented by a series of attractive workshops on transferable skills, and an opportunity to cooperate with startups and non-governmental organisations during short-term secondments.
